    Dear Willie, I thank God that we were related and you are my big brother. We spent time laughing, praying for one another,crying and sharing with many updates, You lived in Rhode Island for a long, long time and our busy schedules kept us on the phone more than in person. With every encounter, you were Willie with many stories on how you helped your friends and their families. You were always giving to others without expectation of anything returning. What a devoted heart to help those in need. You loved your beautiful, precious Decilera aka Betsy unconditionally and you were heartbroken when heaven claimed that beautiful Angel. I know it was hard for you and I know that you loved her dearly and we also loved Betsy.

    Hey, the stories of your grandson Alejandro were priceless and he is so adorable. Wow Willie that baby was so loved by you and you could not stop talking about the times you shared with Alejandro. He should know that his grandpa Willie loved him unconditionally also. I thank God that we saw each other last year twice, It was really nice to hug and kiss you this past December. I remember some of our conversation about mom being happy in heaven and free of pain. You must be enjoying that awesome welcome in heaven and seeing Mom, and Betsy is priceless. It’s not goodbye, but see you later. Love you, Lee

    Big brother you took me on 1st trips when you started working in your 1st Job ever.. Dad and I were sharing about your humility. You never ever disrespected your parents and every single time they would reprimand you, you would just put your head down and never tried to defend yourself.. You had such a contagious laugh and a great sense of humor. Always with a positive spirit and attitude..You loved the the Lord and enjoy worship music.. Everyone that called me from the town you spent most of your life at, just had wonderful things to say about you.. They said you were always helping people and the church over there loved you dearly.. Sorry I was unable to pick up that last call you made to me while I was driving.. Thanks for having me in your mind… I’m so hurt you left us but I know we will meet again.. Love you so much, Minny

    My brother, it was a pleasure and an honor to have been your friend and brother in Christ. You leave behind with us some beautiful memories. You will be missed dearly my friend. From the days of Templo Salem all the way to Florida. You are finally at peace with both your daughter and mom. No more pain and suffering ever again. The Montanez family has lost a son….a father….a brother….but know this in your heart that we will all be reunited one day and we can all look back at our crazy lives and say….wow we made it..! Goodbye for now my brother….put in a good word for me bro…l am gonna need all the help I can get. May God bless the Montanez family during this time. To Lydia, Cheo,Edgardo and Minerva all I can say is that he is in a far better place than us. Love you all…..always.
